Clouds

Where are the clouds ?

which agreed to become a messenger,

and take the yearning of Yaksha

to his wife far away

Where are the clouds ?

which bring succor

from scorching heat

breath fresh life into the earth.

The clouds which visit my house,

cannot be those,

when they pour,

my cottage trembles and leaks,

the floor becomes a pond

and everyone in the home weeps.
